Generally, they attack en mass in very dark conditions. It takes the combined "might" of all of them to knock someone out for about ten minutes, so they really don't have much force. The idea is that they hide in the shadows... and learn... Go to Comment
The lycanthropic carnival: A decent, well written submission. This could be a neat background addition to any high fantasy campaign. As it stands it is okay, but there is nothing terribly exciting about it. Personally I love twists, details and stories within stories. Right now you have a quality one dimensional story.

I tend to agree with AG's comment, but I do understand your reply as well, Grey. As a backdrop it works just fine. I get it, You're painting with broad strokes here (like in the teddy bear piece as well), providing expanded idea seeds, for a GM to build upon. Good. Go to Comment
I like the idea, and the background is decent. Something I would suggest would be to give some descriptions for specific locations within the carnival. Do they have a special tent just for "weathering out" their transformations? Also, what happens usually during the full moon, do they just sit around and mope,or do the villagers find oddly killed deer in the woods the next morning? Go to Comment
I like this one as well. Completely re-inventing a well-known creature's tale of genesis. A sacrifice of dozens of basilisks is a nice visual :) And the 95/96 being born female is a nice otuch too. Are you perchance familiar with the 'maedar'? I believe they appeared in an old Dragon magazine once. The rarer-than-rare male counterpart of the Medusa. (Perhaps that 1/96?)They were able to pass thru walls and turn stone to flesh (for eating). Anyway, i just mentioned them because they would make a perfect addition to your myth.
First off, welcome to the Citadel, Grey. This is a nice new look at the medusa as a race (though I prefer to call them gorgons, since that's the actual name of the creature, and not simply the most well known one). The history is interesting, and it is nicely detailed. A few more details about this "infant god" of theirs would be nice. Great first sub. Go to Comment
There is a land where every person wears spectacles. Those without eyeglasses are considered to be the lowest stratum of society, so adventurers without glasses are treated like outcastes. It certainly would explain those heroes wearing sunglasses for no apparent reason...
